I'm planning on getting triple monitors.
Would running nVidia surround with my 770 and 3 monitors be OK with a single 770, or would it be wise to get another 770 for SLI?
I have my case opened most of the time seeing as how I don't have any additional fans (some on the way).
I'm currently running 2 monitors on my single 770, I use one for gaming and the other for browsing the web whilst I game, which it does fine at

Also, do you know of a stand that will work for my triple monitors?
Preferably one that sits on or clamps onto my desk.
I'm wanting to get into MMO's and games like D3 and the such. FPS' like BF4 and so on.

Assuming you are gaming now at 1920x1080, there will be quite a drop in performance when moving to 5760x1080. Try it and see if you mind the lower settings you will have to live with. Then you can decide if it is worth the 2nd card.

Alright, thanks, if I were to go for another 770, would my PSU support? I would need around 680 watts, I have a 750 watt, this might be a dumb question (it is) but would i be able to safely use my current PSU?

Personally, I would not hesitate using that PSU with 2 x GTX770s. It has a strong 62A +12V rail rated at 744W. It is a tier 2 PSU: https://community.newegg.com/eggxpert/computer_hardware...
Each GTX 770 is a 230W card (19Amp). Should be plenty of headroom.
